Europe asks Cuba to pick a
new government for Venezuela

American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 10/10/2017 3:07:18 PM

It´s pretty obvious that the Monroe Doctrine was put there for a reason once Europe´s ham-fisted shenanigans in Venezuela come to light. The European Union is asking communist Cuba, Venezuela´s ally and mentor, to mediate a transition in Venezuela from the collapsing Maduro dictatorship to, oh, whomever Cuba chooses to serve its interests, apparently. Cuba´s going to be the good guy here and persuade Nicolás Maduro to pack his bags and head for Varadero Beach or the private islands of Cuba´s Communist Party elite. Not kidding, here´s the Financial Times report, describing the logic:

Gorka´s back on Fox – and

Sebastian Gorka, one of President Trump´s former national security officials, is finally back. The popular explainer of Trump´s policies will be taking a spot on Fox News as a national security strategist, adding depth and analysis to how the U.S. role in the world is playing out. With his inside knowledge of how the Trump White House works, he should be an excellent source of information who can help listeners understand what is going on as events play out. Here´s the fun part: it should drive the left apoplectic. Ben Rhodes, a former Obama official and Gorka´s noisiest detractor, will be

Inside Katha Pollitt´s boiling Trump meltdown

Want to see what it looks like inside the head of a Trump Derangement Syndrome victim? Look no further than Nation magazine stalwart Katha Pollitt´s unhinged diary of her inability to accept reality. It´s actually an amazing specimen of the phenomenon, written in her safe space of the New York Review of Books´ daily blog section, where she is likely sure no conservative treads. Here, she found herself free to let it all hang out, spewing all the hate she feels toward anyone who is not...exactly like her in the matter of politics. Hate. It´s all about hate. And she admits it´s

The other day, a friend of mine, a liberal Democrat, said that he had to admit his life hadn’t changed since Trump was elected. Well, I said, It’s only been eight months. Give him time! What I wanted to say was, How nice for you. Tell it to that undocumented teenage girl who was blocked for a month from getting an abortion while held in a Texas detention center. Tell it to the Muslim family that a Connecticut neighbor of mine saw a white guy shouting at in the Big Y supermarket parking lot: Go back to your own country! Tell

The left´s vaunted trial lawyer, David

David Boies, the left-wing lawyer famous for taking on Al Gore´s hanging chad Florida election disputes in 2000, turns out to have been the facilitator of an army of private investigators who tracked actresses making sexual abuse allegations against Hollywood studio big Harvey Weinstein and the reporters reporting it. That would be the same David Boies who defended Michael Moore for his illegal Cuba-junketeering in the making of the movie Sicko, a phony Potemkin-village account describing the glories of Castrocare, and the same David Boies who defended CBS after its disgusting smear job on General William Westmoreland, who sued.

How to get labeled a Putin stooge

Democrats in the tank with Hillary Clinton are calling former acting Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile a Putin stooge for the great crime of .... observing the obvious about Hillary Clinton´s health. Brazile triggered this bunch by writing in her memoirs that she came close to replacing Clinton as the Democratic nominee for president after Clinton collapsed on the campaign trail at a 9/11 commemoration in New York. The tweet cites a recent statement from Hillary´s campaign supporters, in "An Open Letter from HILLARY FOR AMERICA 2016 team" that debunked Brazile´s new book about all the disorder in the failed Hillary

Hillary´s takeover of the DNC possible?

As one reads the wretched news of how Hillary Clinton came to take over the Democratic Party and snatch the nomination from rival Bernie Sanders, in the memoirs of former DNC acting chair Donna Brazile, it´s striking how the central persuading dynamic of it is money. As Fox News´ Greg Jarrett explained: According to Brazile, the DNC went broke under the leadership of Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. This dire circumstance presented a perfect scenario for Clinton to seize command of the party apparatus by paying off its debt of roughly $20 million dollars. But in exchange, the DNC executed a

Most people, when they run out of arguments, just shut up. Much of the left, however, moves on to attacking the person. For being the person. Getting personal. Bullying. So now we have a couple of left-wing male columnists from big self-important newspapers – the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times – attacking Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a White House employee, for things she can´t do anything about. The New York Times´ Frank Bruni shames Sanders for her Southern accent: Besides, she´s serving a function other than communication, which turns out not to be her forte.

Got a spare $10 million? Then you too can reverse the votes of 62 million Americans, all by using your money. That´s the spectacle we are seeing with these unprecedented Tom Steyer television ads, calling on Americans to sign his petition to impeach President Trump. Who knows how many times the sound has been turned down across the 50 states that can´t otherwise get out of hearing this when he comes on? Steyer´s also planning to spend millions on digital media, and already his ads are turning up on Skype. Every night we hear these ads, a sound-bite fest of phony

How do you defend the indefensible? Start with Axios. The news outfit founded by former Politico mainstay Mike Allen has a front-page feature by Steve LeVine that attempts to defend and rehabilitate Fusion GPS, the group that produced the phony Trump dossier. In the piece, Levine recasts the notorious smear outfit as just a group of smart investigative reporters turned gumshoes. Axios portrays their principals, Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch, as intelligent, ultra-competent, and rather incredibly, only in their line of business "with no motive apart from the thrill of the chase." (Which is to say they take anyone´s dollars.)

LOMA LINDA, Calif. — “This is your life,” the doctor said. “You’re a quadriplegic.” When she heard the news, Kim Gervais broke down. The tears rolled out, and her daughter clasped her mother’s head, overcome by her own inability to help. Then came Ms. Gervais’s trip home to Southern California. And here she was, three weeks after the shooting, strapped into a wheelchair at a rehabilitation clinic, toughing it out with a physical therapist and straining to drink from a sippy cup as her toddler grandchildren looked on. This is the road after Las Vegas, after a high-stakes gambler named Stephen Paddock hauled

UPDATE 2:14 p.m.: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called on the party´s nominee for Senate in Alabama, Roy Moore, to withdraw from the race if a new report that he pursued teenage girls in his 30´s is true. "If these allegations are true, he must step aside." The Washington Post published the story about Moore on Thursday. ORIGINAL STORY: Republican senators reacted with alarm to a published report that Roy Moore, the Republican Senate nominee in Alabama, initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when Moore was 32, the Washington Post reported on Thursday. “It’s a nasty story,

A day before Donald Trump arrived in Beijing for crucial talks, China arrested 3 prominent African-American athletes. It would be awful if this became a racial issue today back home. A new element could be introduced into the deal-making at the heart of presidential mission to East Asia, and these youths have a following. They all have head shots from UCLA (snip) If the Chinese wish to use this incident for bargaining leverage (and why wouldn’t they?), they could exchange lenient treatment of the matter, as an “administration violation,” which sounds non-criminal.

Former CBS journalist Dan Rather appeared on NBC "Today" on Tuesday where he lamented on the American people´s lack of trust in the media. "There’s a recent poll that said nearly half of people think the media make up stories," host Savannah Guthrie noted. "The media itself is under fire." "What do you think the media needs to do better to enhance its own credibility?" she asked. "We need to do a better job, we need to do our job. Our job is to bear witness, to be honest brokers of information, to be as accurate and fair as we possibly can," Rather

If standard practices are applied, the three UCLA basketball players – including LiAngelo Ball – arrested Tuesday in mainland China under suspicion of shoplifting face between three and 10 years in prison if convicted, according to Chinese lawyers who briefed Yahoo Sports on the applicable laws. The sentencing guidelines could shift depending on the amount that the Chinese could prove was allegedly stolen. Authorities believe the players shoplifted from a Louis Vuitton store near the UCLA team hotel outside of Shanghai. The Bruins are in China to play Georgia Tech on Saturday in the season opener. The players were arrested Tuesday

Get rid of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’

When California lawmakers return to the Capitol in January, the state chapter of the NAACP will be seeking their support for a campaign to remove “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem. The organization last week began circulating among legislative offices two resolutions that passed at its state conference in October: one urging Congress to rescind “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon” as the national anthem, and another in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who launched a protest movement against police brutality among professional athletes by kneeling when “The Star-Spangled

I argued that conservatives should disassociate themselves from Roy Moore and denounce him weeks before credible allegations surfaced today that he preyed on teenage girls, one only 14 years old. So I’m pretty locked-in. I suppose it’s good that some Republicans see this as a bridge too far. But it’s a little hard for me to focus on that upside when you think about what they considered to be acceptable until now. Still, it’s good to know where the line is. You can set up shady charities for profit. You can call for religious tests and champion theocracy. You can

Maybe it was that whole “low energy” thing. In surprisingly undiplomatic terms for elder statesmen, George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush, bash President Trump in a soon-to-be released book. While both of the former presidents vowed when they left office not to speak ill of their successors — a pledge they’ve kept for the most part — there’s just something about Donald J. Trump that they can’t stand. (Snip) “You can either exploit the anger, incite it, or you can come up with ideas to deal with it.” Jeb offered real solutions, “but it didn’t fit with

Joe Biden writes in his new book that President Barack Obama once told him he would have appointed him president if he could and told him he´d "be the best president." The former vice president´s memoir Promise Me, Dad, delves into the death of his son Beau from brain cancer in 2015 and his ultimate decision to not seek the Democratic presidential nomination. In an interview with the New York Times, Biden said the subject of his son´s illness weighed on him and the president, whom he confided in as it became clear Beau would likely not survive.
